Felix Hernandez is always a safe bet in fantasy with Ichiro Suzuki joining him in those ranks right off the bat.

Mariners insider Danny Ferguson brings us the Weekly Seattle Mariners notebook. The Mariners won more than they lost this week! Something fans should relish while it lasts. Manager Eric Wedge may be moving Ichiro Suzuki in the lineup once again, Justin Smoak’s bat finally showed up in New York, and the M’s took a trip to some local schools to educate students on the importance of drug prevention in their futures.

NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners blogger Insider Steve gives us his weekly M’s pitching breakdown in the arms under the spotlight segment. The Mariners took on the Tampa Bay Rays, and got swept, and then won their series versus the pathetic group of ballplayers that are the Minnesota Twins.

Mariners insider Danny Ferguson brings us the Weekly Seattle Mariners notebook. The Mariners biggest off season news was the trade that brought Jesus Montero and Hector Noesi.

NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners beat blogger Danny Ferguson tells us watching Brendan Ryan’s final at bat against Phil Humber and the Chicago White Sox last weekend personifies the embarrassment and frustration that has hit the M’s.

NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners blogger Jonathan Irwin reports on the first M’s game of the series versus the Cleveland Indians.

NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners blogger Jonathan Irwin reports on the third M’s game of the series versus the Oakland Athletics. A 5-3 win and a win for Blake Beavan.

NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners blogger Jonathan Irwin reports on the second M’s game of the series versus the Oakland Athletics. A 4-0 win and a shutout for Hector Noesi. Hitting homers in Safeco is a tough feat, let alone nailing a 415-footer to dead center. And yet, Jesus Montero did just that It’s still early in the season, but already Ichiro Suzuki seems ill-fit to hit third.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners blogger Insider Steve says the Mariners bench boss Eric Wedge is walking a fine line where losing your clubhouse is a distinct possibility. Only time will tell, but one thing Steve does know, for the time being, Eric Wedge is in charge. Wedge is holding the M’s players more accountable for mistakes he would consider to be egregious. Brendan Ryan, and Shawn Kelley take note.
